Sounds scary! Look behind you and lock your car doors immediately after entering your vehicle especially at 4:30 in the morning. I am sure they must of followed this guy to his car. With so many places staying open so late in Astoria and visitors, you can not be suspicious of everyone but at least you are aware of your surroundings. The victim also had $350 dollars in his car..I wonder where he was going or coming from.

Probably need to check out the videos from Melrose Ballroom on 33 St off 36 Ave and the hip hop club on 34 St and 36 Ave.
These places need to lose their liquor licenses.

I wonder if the victim was from the neighborhood or just visiting?
